Editorial Reviews

Review

“I’ve been a huge fan of Julia Cameron’s work since I first delved into THE ARTIST’S WAY over a decade ago. Since then she’s continued to create a series of inspirational books, the latest of which is THE ARTIST’S WAY EVERY DAY, a wonderful collection of meditations and daily inspiration. A great addition to any collection of meditation and inspirational materials, Ms. Cameron’s new offering is sure to guide you in a new direction.”
--Dishmag.com
 
“Now, Cameron’s most vital work is accessible in a daily guide. Intended for study for the course of a year, THE ARTIST’S WAY EVERY DAY extracts the essential teachings from Cameron’s groundbreaking work and assigns them to each of the 365 days.”
--Business Woman


Praise for THE ARTIST'S WAY...

THE ARTIST’S WAY by Julia Cameron is not exclusively about writing—it is about discovering and developing the artist within whether a painter, poet, screenwriter or musician—but it is a lot about writing. If you have always wanted to pursue a creative dream, have always wanted to play and create with words or paints, this book will gently get you started and help you learn all kinds of paying-attention techniques; and that, after all, is what being an artist is all about. It’s about learning to pay attention.”
--Anne Lamott, Mademoiselle
 
“The premise of the book is that creativity and spirituality are the same thing, they come from the same place. And we were created to use this life to express our individuality, and that over the course of a lifetime that gets beaten out of us. [THE ARTIST’S WAY] helped me put aside my fear and not worry about whether the record would be commercial.”
--Grammy award-winning singer Kathy Mattea
 
“Julia Cameron brings creativity and spirituality together with the same kind of step-by-step wisdom that Edgar Cayce encouraged. The result is spiritual creativity as a consistent and nourishing part of daily life.”
--Venture Inward
 
“I never knew I was a visual artist until I read Julia Cameron’s THE ARTIST’S WAY.”
--Jannene Behl in Artist’s Magazine
 
“Julia Cameron’s landmark book THE ARTIST’S WAY helped me figure out who I really was as an adult, not so much as an artist but as a person. And award-winning journalist and poet, Cameron’s genius is that she doesn’t tell readers what they should do to achieve or who they should be—instead she creates a map for readers to start exploring these questions themselves.”
--Michael F. Melcher, Law Practice magazine
 
“This is not a self-help book in the normative sense. It is simply a powerful book that can challenge one to move into an entirely different state of personal expression and growth.”
--Nick Maddox, Deland Beacon
 
THE ARTIST’S WAY (with its companion volume THE ARTIST’S WAY MORNING PAGES JOURNAL) becomes a friend over time, not just a journal. Like a journal, it provokes spontaneous insights and solutions; beyond journaling, it establishes a process that is interactive and dynamic.”
--Theresa L. Crenshaw, M.D., San Diego Union-Tribune
 
 “If you really want to supercharge your writing, I recommend that you get a copy of Julia Cameron’s book THE ARTIST’S WAY. I’m not a big fan of self-help books, but this book has changed my life for the better and restored my previously lagging creativity.”
--Jeffrey Bairstow, Laser Focus World
 
“Working with the principle that creative expression is the natural direction of life, Cameron developed a three month program to recover creativity. THE ARTIST’S WAY shows how to tap into the higher power that connects human creativity and the creative energies of the universe.”
--Mike Gossie, Scottsdale Tribune
 
THE ARTIST’S WAY is the seminal book on the subject of creativity and an invaluable guide to living the artistic life. Still as vital today—or perhaps even more so—than it was when it was first published in 1992, it is a provocative and inspiring work. Updated and expanded, it reframes THE ARTIST’S WAY for a new century.”
--Branches of Light
 
“THE ARTIST’S WAY has sold over 3 million copies since its publication in 1992. Cameron still teaches it because there is sustained demand for its thoughtful, spiritual approach to unblocking and nurturing creativity. It is, dare we say, timeless.”
--Nancy Colasurdo, FOXBusiness

Praise for VEIN OF GOLD, the second volume in the ARTIST’S WAY trilogy
 

“For those seeking the wellspring of creativity, this book, like its predecessor, is a solid gold diving rod.”
--PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

The space below each days suggestion is useful for writing notes as she suggests.

Don't get it confused with the original Artists Way, this book is a collection of daily lessons/insights/thoughts.

Thank you dear Julia Cameron for your ongoing demonstration of living courage and generous sharing.

I'd felt creatively flat and had recently returned to the wellspring -- Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way and its twin practices of Morning Pages and Artist Dates. So I was interested to see that Cameron has sliced her material in a new and accessible way in this collection of daily excerpts about the creative process. Might there be magic in her tiny inspirations, ingested every day?

I opened the book to that day's entry, November 14: "So often in a creative career, the magic that is required is quite simply the courage to go on. Singers must sing their scales. Actors must learn their monologues. Writers like myself must spend time at the keys. We would like a break in the weather. We would like a break, period, but the breaks, if they come, will not come today. Today is about keeping on."

Bingo.

A few notes. The excerpts range from a couple of sentences to a full page; most are a paragraph. (I uploaded a photo [under the book's cover image on the main page] to show a representative sample.) Though it's not a journal, there is room to make notes in the generous amount of white space. And to clarify the product description that this "little book can easily be carried along" -- it's a little chunk of a book, 400+ pages and sized between a mass-market and a trade paperback.

Highly recommended to inspire -- and ground :) -- anyone in creative pursuit.

Can't recommend this little daily reading enough. A person with the usual artist's lethargy...I simply agreed with myself to READ it every day. Didn't need to DO anything....just read...

WOW What affirmations awaited me. No I'm not out in the studio painting like a crazy lady...but I AM recovering, one day at a time.

THANKS JULIA!!!

Julia Cameron's heart, wisdom, encouragement and talent continues to know just how to combine safety, connection and encouraging inspiration for me. I love this chunk of a book and count on receiving just the appropriate (loving, welcoming and warm) invitation I love in order to step out and reach a bit further.

I can open ANY page randomly and get the something I need to continue. I do like that it is also a Daily Inspiration.

This book is a lovely gift I have given to others also working the on-and-off journey of their art.

Thank you dear Julia Cameron for your ongoing demonstration of living courage and generous sharing.

Julia Cameron's Book, The Artist's Way Every Day is a beautifully simple and valuable tool for practicing creatives, embryonic creatives, and people in search of spiritual nutrition. It is practical and brief, yet manages to distill a powerful daily reminder for people who enjoy a wholesome and efficient reminder of who they really are, and where they could be headed, if they choose. Thanks again, Julia Cameron, for midwifing more and more creatives!

Format: Paperback
While I admit, the two stars goes to the every so often moving or inspiring message- most of what I've read has been pretty dull.

By dull I mean like another reviewer, "Nothing new here."

Some of the days are written in first person, which for me, take away more than it adds. It takes me out off of the page and into the head of the author.

It should be noted that this book is not written for the purpose of a devotional- rather it is a collection of quotes from the author's other writing, assigned to days of the year.

This format would overall be better suited for a desktop flip calendar.

In all, like I mentioned, there were a few that are particularly touching and inspiring. Others, either have the opposite effect, or are too shallow/ don't really say anything. Again having to do with it just being a collection of quotes.

I'm glad I found it at a local Target on clearance, though!

I have been working with "The Artist Way" over a month ago. And...it was just what I needed. Very therapeutic, healing, inspiring, amazing.

I love to write and I can't wait to grab my book, sit down, read the message for the day and write from the surface to the deeps of my being.

This is a keeper to read and reread. The information can be applied to any art form and also is about living your life as an art form. There are exercises that really cause you to get to know yourself better. I would recommend this book to any one even if you don't consider yourself an "artist".

Format: Paperback
Great for help in getting "out of the box" no matter if it is a box you made or one that others made and stuffed you into; love the wide margins--am filling them up with notes for my own life and my own book;

reading this book as I am maybe half way through my own process of releasing the creative self so perhaps I can nod "yes" to its concepts more easily because some of them I have already begun to use; lots of practical stuff which is missing in so many books; lots of quotes in the margins which makes it even more interesting;

great for anyone on a spiritual journey or for those just starting out...or even for those who don't think they want to be spiritual but do want to change; beware it IS a spiritual book but she is careful not to try to put you back into her own version of THE BOX.
